If i was alive then i would have said, look birds can fly, its all matter of weight vs lift power.

If the lift is powerful enuf to offset the weight, then you fly, just clone a damn bird wing to 50 ft, and use a small powerful engine to provide thrust like boats do.

I bet todays brains could make a working basic plane, using 1700 technology, sure with toadys knowledge but its possible.

Herschel did not name the planet Uranus, he called it "the Georgium Sidus" (the Georgian Planet) in honor of King George III of England.

Common whats 4-6 billion dollars, a weeks military budget.

Just print so more fuking money retards, or ask bill gates to pay for it or bloody just bill it to Apple, since they pay no taxes

But really Amazon, how hard is it to add features, get a clue, your dumb ass new age programmers havent heard of 'settings' like the old days in the 90s, where every god damn thing had a option 0....100.
